Thanks for the compliments fellas. This little project wasn’t particularly fun. I’m glad it’s done. I’m finding the smaller things are, the more difficult they are to build.

Bob – Ya, I’ve got a bunch of money invested in this “hobby”. If the market hadn’t have tanked, I’d be semi retired right now and wood working was going to be something to keep me busy and help pay some bills. For now, and the past several years, I build stuff for friends and family and they end up buying me stuff in return, like a router lift or a case of wine I want. They get something they want, the way they want it and I get something in return that I want, plus I get to do something I enjoy doing.

No Festool stuff yet, but I have been eyeballing a Domino for a while now….. My next toy will be one of those oscillating drum sanders Jet makes.

Beautiful work, Mike.

BobKay - your title thingamabob is based on post count. Somebody who cares more than I do probably knows where the chart is.

Mark/Adrian: So, not only afraid of solvents, but afraid of "trick questions," too?!? And I thought there were no girls on this site.

Michael d: Well, that's a good deal for all concerned. Clients are a whole other beast. They tell me what they want. I then try to convince them how they should want it. What did you get in exchange from Mrs. d for such an artful piece? C'mon, didn't you sweat and get dirty doing it?

No girls here, only men with square rooms.

I don't think you can ever have enough clamps Fred..... Sure wish I had more, but those stinking K bodies are expensive as hell.

Bob, she got me an Incra fense for my table saw, a WWII 48T blade and a Delta M/T jig for Christmas. We are not married so I get other things whenever the mood srikes. \:\)
